Ceramic Tile Pendant



Here's a fun craft idea from The DIY Dish!  This is a simple and very inexpensive project that would be a fun summer project to make with a group of family or friends.

Take This...


and This...

 
add some scrapbook paper, acrylic sealer and a glue-on bail to make this fun pendant...


It's pretty much the same technique used to make these tile coaster...


Here are a few tips for making these pendants...

1.  Use heavier card stock scrapbook paper to avoid bubbles when Mod Podging
2.  Avoid buying tiles with sharp, unfinished edges
3.  Use a glossy sealer to give the pendant a nice shine
4.  Mod Podge paper to the back of each tile to cover the rough surface and avoid snags on your clothing
5.  Add rub-ons or stickers to personalize your pendant


You can sand the edges to a vintage look...



Or leave them squared...

Enjoy!

  4. I used 4x4 tiles from Lowes for the coasters. They were $.16 each and came in white and off-white. I believe they also sell similar tiles at Home Depot.
